Reformed. Christianity. Evangelism. Modern Culture.

Will Ed Young invite Matt Chandler for his February C3 Conference too?

Nah! Matt Chandler has probably been ear marked already as a barn burner after “that” other sermon. Yup, I mean the one that made Steven Furtick cringe during the failed Code Orange Revival. Well you see Ed Young is back from his folly of broadcasting himself in bed on the church roof…

Megachurch pastor Ed Young will be hosting the fast-approaching C3 Conference on Feb. 15 at his Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas. The conference will feature prominent Christian leaders speaking on the importance of creative inspiration in church culture.

The term “C3” stands for Creative Church Culture, and seeks to inspire those in attendance on how they can better connect the Scriptures to the modern world.

The official website describes the conference as an “experience that combines inspirational messages, incredible worship and insightful teachings that will amp up your creativity and passion.”

The event will take place at the Fellowship Church’s Grapevine Campus. Senior pastor of Fellowship Church and host of the conference, Ed Young, will be speaking along with many other prominent Christian leaders, including Pastor Judah Smith of the City Church in Seattle, Wash., Pastor Carl Lentz of New York’s Hillsong Church, renowned author Lee Strobel, and Pastor Steve Kelly of the Wave Church in Virginia Beach.

“Nobody does it like Pastor Ed and Lisa Young. Nobody in the world. This is a first class conference,” Steven Furtick, founder and pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C., said in a promotional video featured on the C3 Conference website.

With Steven Furtick already setting the pace for the conference by exalting the Youngs its hardly any surprise that even the theme for the conference says nothing about “Jesus”. It’s all about “you” and how you can “”experience [and] amp up your creativity and passion.”

To some people the bible is just a means to an end…a shtick. If it has a word or phrase or verse that can be used as a draw string, it will be used to pack up a stadium or auditorium. If you are looking for creativity and culture then C3 will be the place for you.

If you are looking for a church you are better off looking else where. Maybe start by ask Furtick where he left Chandler. Then ask Chandler to show you were the cross is. There you will find the forgotten “C”….Christ.

Nobody is like Pastor Ed and Lisa Young Christ. Nobody in the world. 😉

    You don’t paint a flattering picture of American Christianity – or should I say churches.
